This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby disagreed with two of her guests on Monday's show, as they knocked Dolly Parton's upcoming photoshoot with Playboy.
Matthew Wright and Julia Hartley-Brewer joined Holly and Phillip Schofield in the ITV studios, discussing the current affairs of the day.
In more light-hearted news, Phil revealed Dolly, 74, has agreed to pose for Playboy, 48 years after her first racy shoot for the lads' mag.
Speaking on the Scott Mills & Chris Stark show on Radio 5 Live over the weekend, Dolly said she would appear in the magazine if it was in "good taste".
Asking the guests their opinion on the news, Matthew insisted it was a "shame" that Dolly had decided to pose for Playboy.
Holly, 39, quickly interrupted, and argued it was an empowering way for older women to embrace their bodies, as a sign of confidence.
She said: "Is it not a way of celebrating?"
Unfortunately, guest Julia appeared to agree with Matthew, as she added: "I'd want to be remembered for that [her music] rather than celebrating my body in a tawdry magazine.
"This message is going out all time to teenage girls, ‘if you’re confident you should strip off’. Men don’t do this. Why do women think they have to do this?
"Good on Dolly if she’s got the body after, let’s face it, an awful lot of surgery. Why does anyone want to see it and why does anyone want to do it?"
When Julia wondered who would "want to see" Dolly in the nude, Holly interrupted again, throwing her hand in the air.
She declared: "I want to see it because I think it's very celebratory and also I don’t think it’s the only way she’s celebrating her age, it’s one of the ways.
"It’s part of a bigger thing."
The ITV star added she didn't "think its the only way she's celebrating her age" as she explained: "She's got a lot more to her."
As Holly hinted she wasn't going to agree with her guests, the awkwardness left the studio when Julia suggested that Phil pose nude.
Pulling a face, Phil made it clear an appearance in Playboy wouldn't be on the cards anytime soon.
This Morning airs on weekdays at 10am on ITV.
